Cleary, internet-based identity theft is on the rise. Each time an individual connects to the World Wide Web, they place user accounts, passwords, financial and other sensitive information at risk. Despite this stark jump in frequency, more consumers are turning to the convenience of online bill-pay and banking. For both business and home users, the costs associated with identity theft and recovering from the loss of sensitive data is a pricey proposition.
RazazWork Xtreme Development, a company based in Pakistan, attempts to answer the need for greater online security with its product KeyGuard! Hack Proof Security (KeyGuard). Their product is an anti-keylogger software that encrypts and scrambles a user's keystrokes. It foils keylogging utilities from capturing and transmitting recorded data to the peering eyes of criminals located somewhere on the internet.

KeyGuard installs with ease. The self-configured software requires no user input during the set-up process. While running, the program uses minimal system memory and resources.

On the surface, these dubious claims will appeal to the technical novice. However, advanced computer users will quickly recognize the fanciful nature of these aggrandized announcements. The product lacks anti-screen capture, anti-clipboard, anti-webcam, and anti-DirectX logging capabilities among other things. These absent features clearly put the consumer at risk for potential identity theft, successful hack attempts and more.
